- 1 1/2 oz Cognac
- 3/4 oz Rye Whiskey
- 3/8 oz Simple Syrup (1 to 1)
- 12 Spearmint Leaves
- 1/4 oz Aged Jamaican Rum
Gently muddle the mint and syrup in a julep cup with a barspoon, working the leaves up the sides of the cup. Pack the cup with finely crushed ice and pour the Cognac and rye in. Stir till the cup frosts and the syrup blends with the spirits. Top up with ice, float the rum on top and garnish with a large mint sprig and a straw cut so only 1 inch of it protrudes from the drink.

This is a variation on the standard bourbon model. If you don't have the rum, just up the rye to a full 1 oz.
FYI - don't use a paper straw - it will quickly fray and clog up.
